Southwestern Wyoming

On August 7th we decided to adventure a little closer to home. One thing I love so much about Wyoming is all the wildlife you see everywhere. On our way out we saw a group of wild horses. Of course we had to stop to show Amber!
She hitched a ride on Grandpa’s shoulders up to the Indian Petroglyphs
The sandstone is covered with Indian carvings
One of my favorites was this little guy

Amber thought they were pretty cool!!
One of my favorite things about where I grew up is that you can see for MILES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our next stop was Boar’s Tusk which is the inner core of an ancient volcano
While Amber played in the dirt (go figure)

Us older kids climbed up into the middle of the volcano

Crazy picture taking ensued

To get back down we slid on rocks the whole way–it was way fun and so much easier!

Our last stop of the day was the amazing Killpecker Sand Dunes. They are the second largest moving sand dune system in the world, second only to that in the Sahara Desert.

Amber loved playing in the sand

While I got to go for a ride on the 4 wheeler–Woo Hoo!

Another thing I LOVE about Wyoming is the bright blue sky!!!

Again–another amazing day!!!!!

    You guys didn’t go to Pilot Butte? That’s where I fell and “gracefully” landed. haha! I think I lost a sweatshirt up there on my way down though. 🙁 Love the dunes! I wanna go again! 🙂

    I love that Amber is such a Wyoming/Western girl. She takes after her mamma, that’s for sure 😀 Love the pictures! I do have to admit, Wyoming pictures are some of the best.

    I LOVE the sand dunes. Haven’t been up there in a while. Now I really want to go…to bad it’s too cold.

    Hooray for WY! I love it here! I took Shad and his mom to the petroglyphs/sand dunes last year and we had so much fun! I love jumping off into the sand!!

    Love the shadow picture! Shad and I took one of those together when we were at the sand dunes, too. Yours turned out better, though. 😉
